You really need to sign this

Whilst we are on the subject of campaigning, there’s a really important manifesto that you need to support.

So please sign this if you can. We want to gather 100,000 signatures soon. It shouldn’t be hard to do – not with your help.

You can sign here. [The link is correct now - sorry about that and thanks for telling me.]
